One day I found a nest with 4 eggs in my tree.
Weeks later the eggs hatched into little birds.
When I peeked inside the litter birds opened mouths wide.
They were so cute and thought I was their mother!
A Birds Nest in My Tree
By Elaine W, age 8
From Port Coquitlam, BC
Inspiration: In my garden
You come, the pages turn to Spring
You leave, Winter won't be long
In the morning, you make me happy
Your night call makes me sad
Your call says come
Your flight says change
Freedoms here when I see you

His sleek coverings form a looming shadow, gleaming eyes twist side-to-side, fins shoot upwards. He is ready. He lived there. It is his home, but not anymore. The time to migrate has come.
